Per UFC president Dana White, the company has offered welterweight Carlos Condit (Pictured) a Super Bowl Saturday brawl against Josh Koscheck.

“Right now, Carlos wants to fight,” White stated at the UFC 138 post-fight press conference. “He wants to fight on the same card as GSP and Diaz, so we’ll see what happens. Koscheck has been offered [the fight],” White said.

“It could be with Koscheck. Condit wanted that fight.”

Condit was slated to challenge champ Georges St-Pierre for his crown last Saturday at UFC 137, but knee and hamstring injuries forced GSP out just 18 days before showtime. The 170-pound scrap was expected to be rescheduled for early next year.

Condit was awarded the title shot after Nick Diaz blew his opportunity by ditching back-to-back “beauty pageants” to promote the pay-per-view broadcast.

Speaking of Mr. 209, Diaz leapfrogged back into a championship affair against St-Pierre after steamrolling BJ Penn last weekend. White claimed Condit was fine with the switcheroo as long as he was allowed to fight on the same card as St-Pierre and Diaz, which appears destined for February 4th.

Koscheck was last seen putting Matt Hughes down at UFC 135 in September. The victory marked Kos’ first fight since suffering a broken orbital bone in a UFC 124 loss to St-Pierre.

No word on whether the MGM Grand Garden Arena or Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada will host the extravaganza.
